Mariah Carey's walk-in shoe closet. Wow.

We’ve got shoe envy.

Big time.

Pop diva Mariah Carey has just thrown open the doors to her shoe closet. You can only imagine the gorgeous collection of designer labels vying for her attention – and space.

Actually, you don’t need to imagine; you can have a look.

When the 45-year-old singer showed off her flash New York pad, we expected over-the-top opulence, we expected luxury.

But even we were surprised to see that her "favourite room in the house" was devoted to shoes.

Mariah's Instagram account reveals hundreds of pairs of perfection. Shoes of every style and colour. Shoes for any and every occasion.

She posted: “Always my favorite room in the house... #shoes #shoes #moreshoes." Oh Mimi, with shoes like these, you can never put a foot wrong.

If you take a closer look, you'll see row upon row of gold high heels, followed by stacks of brown boots all standing sentinel. And a plush pink armchair where Mariah no doubt sits while she admires her fancy footwear.

So it's hard to reconcile this lavish lifestyle with the time when Mariah "only had one pair of shoes". Yes, you read that right. Way back in 2002, Mariah revealed this to the reality TV show MTV Cribs. Guess what they say is true: don't judge a person until you've walked a mile in their shoes.

Wonder what her new rumoured beau, billionaire businessman James Packer, will have to say about his "boot-ilicious" babe.
